Untied Healthcare has been denying trigger point injections 20553 stating these should not be reported during a 7 day period.
Example: Patient have Trigger Point Injections:
5/21, 5/25, 5/28 & 6/2/2021

I am unable to find any documentation stating there is a time frame in between injections.

Any help would be great
Thanks

I would recommend contacting UnitedHealthcare and having them identify the policy or plan guidelines which they are following in these cases. United offers many Medicare, Medicaid and commercial plans throughout the country, all of which have their own sets of policies, so without knowing what type of plan your patients have, it's hard to know where to start with this.
